Free Copy! One Year Be-Tween You & God devotionals for girls


The One Year Be-Tween You and God devotions for girls
By Sandra Byrd
Rating: 5 Stars

Review: I received a complimentary copy of One Year Be-Tween You & God for review purposes and gave it to my 11-year-old daughter, Alli. She was immediately drawn to the look and feel of the book, but beyond the pure aesthetics, I have noticed that she is continuing to read it every day. When I asked her opinion, she said, “I like the wording.” When I pressed further, she explained that the devotions are easy to understand and she enjoys reading them. From a middle-schooler, I’ll take that as a five-star review any day.

As a mom, I love any book that will draw my children closer to God. Seeing Alli enjoy the book enough to read it every day and browsing through some of the devotions myself, I highly recommend it for tween girls, both from Christian and non-Christian homes. The diary-like format that begins each day with a question resonates with young girls taking those first few shaky steps toward womanhood. In that season of spiritual questioning and development, I appreciate resources that point young girls to a God who loves them and wants to walk with them through every season of life. This is a perfect gift for daughters, granddaughters, nieces or other young girls who are important to you.


Product Description from the Publisher: This One Year book is a diary-style devotional for tween girls (9 to 14) that emphasizes their growing, special relationship with God. Each devotion begins with a statement, thought, or question to God. Every girl is likely to make these statements and ask such questions . . . many of which they may not want to share with other people.

The book emphasizes that tween girls can have a relationship with God and that they can share their intimate thoughts, fears, insecurities, joys, etc. It lets girls know: it's between you and God. Questions/topics include the following: “I know I'm supposed to be close to you (God), but I don't really feel like it now. How can I change that?” “Everyone talks about how I'm supposed to have faith, which is fine, except I don't really understand what faith actually is.” Each devotion gives biblically based insight into the subject.
